Living in Sheffield


SAVTE have created these videos and resources, to help equip people new to Sheffield with the language and skills needed to carry out everyday tasks in the city, such as using health services, going shopping, using public transport, visiting schools, applying for jobs, and accessing volunteering opportunities.

Our vision is to share a set of Sheffield-specific resources that can be accessed in several different ways – by individuals, in 1:1 teaching sessions; in group sessions (including classes and conversation groups) and by partner organisations.
